Hope you’ve had a great weekend! I’ve been crafting like crazy the past week so, I’ll have a few videos for you throughout this coming week. Today I’m sharing what I came up with using the Spellbinders June Small Die Kit – these lovely layers were a lot of fun to work with. When I first looked at the dies I had this idea to create a peacock and things just sort of continued from there. Here’s what I came up with:
Here are some close-ups for you:
So happy with how this turned out. I used a peacock pattern from Cricut and just slightly changed it by cropping off the tail. Then I layered all these “feathers” and put everything together.
I used the stamp set that Spellbinders gifted to me at the beginning of the year (everyone received 1 of 3 different options in January) for all of these cards. It’s got some lovely large scripted words and then loads of smaller sentiments to go with them. To decorate up the corner I’ve used some of the negative pieces from the die cuts.
I love this little turtle! He’s so sweet. Again, I used my Cricut to create the body and simply adjusted the size so that the “shell” would cover the body section. For the top pattern, I added in a few of the hexagons I had trimmed out to make it feel a little more like a shell.
Again, I used that same stamp set for my sentiments and added in some of the negative die cuts for a little something extra.
I couldn’t think of an animal to make with the circle, so I decided to turn them into some balloons. I stamped out my sentiment and then used my mono pen to “tie” the lines to it.
Again, finishing up here with the same stamp set – I love all the different types of cards you can make by rearranging the individual words, and of course, I added a few negatives for a little something more.
Thanks for stopping by today – hope I was able to give you some different ideas on how to use these pretty layered dies. xoxo, Sarah
